At the Top of the hill....

Right now I feel like I am slowly creeping up the big hill on a roller coaster ride I remember this very well.. The same feeling I had about a few months ago. Within the next 24 hours Leah will announce the finalists for Campaign 8. Then you have the week of voting then the dreading stressful Twitter Launch. Which don't get me wrong its an AMAZING Time with AMAZING Women but when your a finalist the minutes no SECONDS tick by so very very slowly. But this time around its another feeling. I'm full of anticipation but I know even if I'm not selected as a finalist or Mamavation Mom I will still join in on this ride because I am going to ride this ride and beat the battle of my obesity "5 lbs at a time" as a wise woman once told me. I will admit that I back slid some after the end of campaign 7 a few days but I know that's its alright to do that because every failure is a chance to restart and relaunch. I can't beat myself up I have to "shut the duck up" and move forward. Which is what I did. I was so excited last week when we were getting ready to go to the zoo and I put on pants that were 2 sizes smaller than I was wearing in Jan.

Where will your feet take you this year? Any plans for a big hike, race, or just alot of hiking?

I am hoping to sign up for the Orange County Special Education PTA's 5K this year. It raises money for our Exceptional Children's department. But I am planning on doing alot of walking would love to take the boys to some of the trails we have around the area.

Well I guess I will talk to you guys later... After we find out if I'm a finalist or not..

Either way I'll be back next week...

Good luck with the campaign... yes, definitely a roller coaster of thrills and chills.

Keep working hard. Have you been joining in with the hazing? I think I have been missing your tweets. Just keep movin' and groovin'.

Have a fabulous week!

Good luck with the campaign. I won't lie, I have the darn butterflies in my tummy and didn't think I would. Truth is I want this and I want it bad. Strange. Hearing about your pant size last week was very inspiring, I'm waiting for that moment. Right now I'd be happy to break into the 100s, I'm so close but it feels like the wind blows the string away just as I'm reaching it. Keep going we are all here with you. :)

First off, whoohoo, way to go on the smaller pants sizes, that's awesome!

The fact that you have the mindset you do- to keep trekking on regardless of the campaign outcome shows the kind of person you are. Good luck, hun!

You're a finalist! I would do a happy dance but my knee refuses to allow it. I'm couch dancing for you though! I'm so proud of you for not giving up and for getting right back in there. I had a rough week but you and I are going to do this!

First off: Congratulations! I hope this week goes by fast for you!
And congratulations on the smaller pants size! That's an even better reward than a smaller number on the scale.
I'm rooting for you! Have a great week!
